FreeBSD is pleased to announce that once again we have been selected to
participate in the Google Summer of Code program. This gives University
students the opportunity to earn a $5000 USD stipend in exchange for
working on Open Source software over their Summer break. Students have
around 12 weeks to work on their project, and will be mentored by existing
FreeBSD committers. Participating organizations will earn $500 USD per
FreeBSD’s organization page may be found at
http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/org/google/gsoc2013/freebsd and a list
of possible project ideas may be found at
https://wiki.freebsd.org/IdeasPage . Please note that projects do not
have to come from the ideas list, and indeed students are encouraged to
produce their own project ideas – the majority of past projects have been
thought up by the participants themselves.
Students are also encouraged to visit http://www.google-melange.com to
view more details of the program, including eligibility requirements, and
a list of other participating organizations.
